Marty “The Moth” Martinez Talks Working ‘Tough Enough’

Current Lucha Underground Champion Marty “The Moth” Martinez spoke with Raj Giri of WrestlingInc. about his brief time with WWE’s superstar competition Tough Enough and what led to him going to Lucha Underground. In the interview, he recalls a time where he traveled all across the Pacific and Southwest only to be noticed by one Big Show.

Here are a few highlights from the interview, which can be read in full HERE:

On participating on Tough Enough: 

“I see Trish Status, Steve Austin, Bill DeMott, Booker T. and, of course, immediately those ‘holy crap, it’s these people’ pops ups….I had to compartmentalize it. OK, that’s my coach, that’s the girl’s coach. I had to take that part and put it aside and they’re just my coaches… I think I did that in most of the competition, until after the competition and was like ‘holy crap, that just actually happened.’ It’s a giant trip because it’s a guy you watch on TV for so many years and now he’s telling you and explaining to you what you need to do to be a better wrestler.”

Martinez on receiving his first WWE Tryout through The Big Show:

“2007 actually happened because of the The Big Show. WWE never comes to Utah to shoot Raw or shoot any TV here, they just do their house shows and in the house shows they don’t need any extra help. When I was trying to get into the WWE they’d never come around here. So I had to fly myself to California, fly myself to Texas, fly myself to Colorado… I flew myself to that whole loop and Big Show noticed me. He walked me to [John] Laurinaitis and said: ‘Give this man a tryout, he flew himself all these places and deserves a tryout.'”
